Thank You for visiting! I am a wife and mother of one. I love to cook (not as much of a baker)and have found that I am more excited to try recipes that have been tried and recommended. I hope you can find something here you will enjoy! Some of my recipes take a little extra time, but they are always easy and worth it! The Olive Tree is mainly a place for recipes. but you might also find household tips, product recommendations, and decorating and craft ideas. I would love to have you submit things you have tried and love! Please leave comments!
